was gravity extra strong today, or what?

Matt and Caitie and their friend Sean came over and cooked a great dinner for me yesterday. Chicken breasts with sauteed peppers and onions and topped with smoke gouda cheese, grilled asparagus, a mixed green salad with goat cheese, dried cranberries and toasted pine nuts, and a mountain of cheesy garlic smashed potatoes. (Do we sense a cheese theme, here?) Then for dessert, the yummiest Euro-trash dessert: crescent rolls stuffed with chocolate chips and Nutella, and sprinkled with cinnamon sugar. Dave arranged the flowers and contributed moral support and clean up for the cooks, while I kicked back with a bottle glass of Oregon's finest pinot noir from this vineyard.

The dinner was served with more wine, (see the cocktail napkin card Caitie made me at the bar after church?) and finished up with a locally made blackberry port.

I was moving very slooooooowly all day today. Was it a high gravity day, or what?

That sounds lovely. I'm really looking forward to having college-aged kids some day. Unfortunately, they don't hibernate in between college and the Sesame Street years. Happy belated "Mo-ommmmmmm!"'s Day (that's how it sounds when my kids say it, anyway).

I love the "card"!
